Notable instructors leading the workshops titled Series 2012 include Australian artist Sallie Portnoy, Joseph Cavallieri who hails from New York, British Columbia’s Meira Mathison, Quebec artist Marjolein Dallinga and RDC’s Jason Frizzell.
In its more than 30 years, Series has offered experienced and amateur artists workshops that are catered to offer personal growth and personal development.
Series offers weeklong courses in a variety of mediums from painting to printmaking, drawing and sculpture, glassblowing, bead making, metalsmithing, ceramics, photography, welding, bronze casting, and more.
Evening social activities are planned as well. They include the college partnering with Alberta Craft Council, as well as Red Deer Museum and Gallery.
